When visiting a ControlScan Website, we may collect some information directly from you when you provide it to us and we may collect other information gathered on a collective basis as you browse the Website.
ControlScan collects several types of information from and about users of our Website including information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number or any other identifier by which you may be contacted online or offline and anonymous information that is about you but does not individually identify you, such as usage details, IP addresses, and information collected through cookies, and other tracking technologies. We collect this information directly from you when you provide it to us, automatically as you navigate through the site, and from third parties such as our business partners.
ControlScan does not knowingly collect Personal Information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinion, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health, and data concerning a natural person's sex life or sexual orientation.

The information we collect on or through our Website may include information that you provide by filling in forms on our Website. This includes information provided at the time of subscribing to our service, or requesting further services, and when you report a problem with our Website.
If you choose to correspond with us through e-mail, we may retain the content of your e-mail messages together with your e-mail address and our responses.
We post customer testimonials on our Website which may contain personally identifiable information. We obtain the customer's consent via email prior to posting any personally identifiable information with their testimonial.

Our Website offers publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your Personal Information from our blog or community forum, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
From time to time, ControlScan may conduct customer satisfaction surveys concerning the certification process and usability functions related to our Website, or any other future service we may provide, in order to improve our services and programs. We welcome member feedback, always, but the contact information requested in the surveys is optional. We also occasionally share this survey data with third parties, but only in a cumulative, statistical format, without disclosing any personal or identifying information of ControlScan members.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We do not link this automatically collected data to other information we collect about you.

Disclosure of Your Information
Third Party Partners
We use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to sending e-mails and processing credit card payments.

We do not share, rent, or trade Personal Information with third parties for their promotional purposes. We do not sell your Personal Information to third parties.
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, e-mail, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions.

You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information.

How Do We Protect Your Information?
ControlScan follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
E-mail is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by e-mail. The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number, national ID, personal health information) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). To learn more about SSL, follow this link—https://www.globalsign.com/en/ssl/.
